Risk Capital | What our clients say

A&G International lead partner Paul Ureel who is involved in a multi-million rand soya bean project in the former Transkei: “South Africa has the opportunity to be an important player in grain production and distribution worldwide. Massive grain production in the Eastern Cape should increase the capacity of the East London and Port Elizabeth harbours where new terminals would have to be built. This could have a multiplier effect and it is reasonable to think that on a long-term basis tens of thousands of jobs will be created. The next step would be to multiply to other provinces.”

Liesl and Stephen de la Harpe of the Graaff-Reinet Fish Farm: “ECDC was one of the first of the country’s top financiers to make an investment and inject about R780,000 into the project for the compilation of the business plan, environmental impact assessment, market acceptance survey and a portion of the feasibility.”
